Thrill – Big Data Processing with C++

Yesterday, I discovered an experimental Big Data processing framework written in C++ called Thrill. As most of you surely know, the well-known frameworks of this kind are mostly based on JVM, like Apache Spark or Apache Flink. This, of course, has many advantages, like easily accessible interfaces and a more domain-oriented approach, as we don’t have to deal with “Ceremony Code” or any internals that don’t touch our domain logic. However, everything comes at a cost and utilizing a VM is a price to be paid no matter how optimized your code is. It’s no wonder these projects often resort to […]

Stream Processing with Apache Flink

It’s been a while since I wrote my last article. A Big-Data Sorry to my “massive” audience.   Actually, I was planning to write a follow-up to the last article on Machine Learning but could not find enough time to complete it. Also, I’ll soon give a presentation in a Meetup (in Germany). A classical example on what happens when you have to complete several tasks at the same time. In the end all of them will fail. But I’ll try to compensate it with yet another task: by writing an article about the brand-new Apache Flink v0.10.0 and its DataStream API.  😀 As always, […]
